I'm not affiliated with this shop, but have ordered from them before, and service has always been outstanding.

A bunch of the Pathfinder Adventure Path characters are available from Reaper. They're excellent, extremely detailled casts, I really like them:


I do get the point about the spoilers. Then again knowing your enemy is kind of important when building your party up to be able to defeat it. There is also no rule that prohibits you from carefully studying villains and henchman beforehand, so for me it's ok to spoiler them here.

Also ordered the cards - looking forward to those as well as adventure deck six.

You likely wanted to say "it's not unusual for her". And I agree, a healer will have access to more blessings and can play these for an exploration. Healing is a powerful ability and there are also quite a few boons that allow for it. My favorite are cards with drip healing.

PS: Just proxy the missing card with another henchman.

I don't have my set here, but I do remember thinking the same thing when playing that scenario.

When will we see a thread for September?

Yes, I'm wondering as well.

Don't get this if you want to run it online. The maps don't copy well and you can forget placing grids. It's very oldschool in a low quality production kind of way. I wanted to run it in combination with Tsar, but decided against it, as we played on roll20.

It's a good solo game, thanks.

UPDATE: Welp, that was enjoyable while it lasted. I've now changed all of the April Fool's product names back to normal. Hope some folks got a chuckle or two out of our goofy post! Have a good weekend, everybody! :D

We did! It was funny! Thanks!

I'm playing the Zeitgeist adventure path with my players, and will provide a write up of each session on my blog. I'll post an update here, when adding a new post.

You may follow all campaign posts on this page.

We've played three sessions so far:

Session #1
Session #2
Session #3

Beware, spoilers lurk.

I'm playing this with my group. You may follow the campaign here. Beware, spoilers lurk.

Yeah, but no response re unchained rogue, so...

Sounds good. Will this be about the Unchained Rogue?

These are good tips - many thanks.

My basic idea was to establish food as a power source in the Deeps, a resource to be warred over. And it should entail a minimum of bookkeeping on the players behalf, just so much that they understand. But I can tell that it will influence the game in an interesting way with all this magic that cannot be used freely. There will be a lot of exceptions and arbitrary rulings. I like that.

Good idea about the rot, it is very damp down there, so destroying a supply is a good option to generate pressure or a story hook for the party.

You will need to ban full-caster, or seaching for food and water will be meaningless with teleport and all other kind of bypass spells.

True, teleport should be banned as well. What other bypass spells are there?

... in any place with animals, any evocation spell is basically create food.

It'll be desert first and underdark later, so they'll be able to eat only the encounters.

GM Lamplighter wrote:
Similarly with plants. Neutralize poison might make some obstacles too easy to overcome as well, if you're planning on having plants around but not be edible. Or, put them on another plane where the natives don't eat or drink.

Hmm, good point. In the desert there will be one oasis for replenishment, in the underdark however... Maybe i'll add a plant trait to the moss and fungi called "indigestible". This way places where digestible moss and fungi grow will be like an oasis as well.

I'd like to play a high-level survival horror adventure in which food and water are important resources. To this end I would like to ban all magic that creates food or water. Banning "Rings of Sustenance" and spells like "Create Food and Water" are obvious. What else should I think about to make the characters depend on food? Thanks!

An idea would be to redesign the hag coven and give an occult character a hook there.

All 13 adventures will eventually be available as PDF. Ten of them are out by now. You can also get them as two hardcovers, but only one has been published so far. I have the deluxe hardcover and it is a beautiful tome.

I'm running this for a group of four and we're having a fantastic time. It is however not that easy to run due to the complexity of the various plotlines across a great many NPCs. Taking a lot of notes helps me to keep track. The one supplement I can thoroughly recommend are the NPC face cards to help the players remember.

Zeitgeist is a work of art. I love it!

Many thanks - I missed the SR bit.

My players use Protection from Evil to ward of summoned devils. What would be a good tactic against that?

The "Player Companion: Monster Summoner's Handbook" was already shipped in June, no?

No, unfortunately it does not. I've been trying for a week now, still no shipping notice but my fingers hurt now. Ah, the agony!
1 of your minis was holding things up. I've moved it to the sidecart and will get the rest shipped as soon as possible.

Aw, thanks Sara!

My group started the run on Delvehaven today, here is what happened just before

The drama of Khazrae Kuelata:
The players remembered the story of Khazrae and sought her help. I took the liberty to model Erinye as a fallen angel that had turned to evil. They wanted to offer the devil her sanity in return for advice on navigating the pathfinder lodge, using the heal scroll they found earlier. The paladin, of course, argued against it, but was overruled. The players first used the wand of restoration to be able to negotiate matters with the erinye, and she agreed. The priest took out the heal scroll and started chanting, as suddenly the spirit of his god entered him and amplified his casting. He has been a devout cleric of Cayden Cailean for the entire adventure, roleplaying his character really well and even going so far as to found an orphanage, his god decided he could use some help. Thus Khazrae Kuelata, the fallen angel, returned to the side of light. The party now has an Angel on their sides for the next thirty days. I hope to be able to spin the story of Khazrae a bit further over the remaining three adventures. We'll see.

Thanks for the heads-up re shipping. I have to say that this time, because of WOTR, I can hardly wait. Really looking forward to a bunch of new cards :-)

I was missing my order, but wrote an email and it arrived a couple of hours later - on a saturday no less. Thanks a bunch - Paizo service is legendary.

How can you be in total cover/concealment and still being observed? By definition, total cover grants you invisibility, no?

The Eternal Potion discovery makes a potion you drink permanent.

Summoners have greater invisibility as a third level spell, and can therefore make it into a potion.

Thanks :-)

I don't understand. Would you spell it out for me?

From what I gather, management decided on a huge blow out sale in october and forgot to hire sufficient staff in advance, to process orders. Hence the customer service doing overtime. It will take a while, I suppose.
